Took the Design Studio 1 class today to the Halifax Casino to get a first-hand experience of the iconography of gaming.
Their assignment is to use the visual language of lottery tickets, casinos and gaming culture in the design of a box for a fictitious pharmaceutical product called “Butane Honey Oil.” The students in this class are researching Health Canada’s pharmaceutical packaging guidelines and combining these constraints with the wild-west marketing techniques of the gaming industry.
The result promises to be full of thrills, spills and surprises!
